    The Pavilion sketch roof garden

    The design for this cutting edge eco house is in the grounds of a Grade 2* listed house The Pagoda by William Chambers located in Blackheath, south east London.

    Designed as a low carbon, contemporary home, Hilson Moran has advised on and employed a number of energy reducing measures including super insulation, passive solar design, an earth sheltered lower ground floor, green roofs, rainwater harvesting, ground source heat pumps, large amounts of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal hot water. By meeting the energy requirements defined by Code 5 for Sustainable Homes, the property conforms to the Governments definition of a Zero Carbon building.
